Emirates goes mobile

Booking a flight on the move has just become much easier with Emirates launching ‘Mobile Emirates.com’. Emirates customers, around the globe, now have the option of booking their flight from the palm of their hand - through their phone’s mobile browser - giving them the freedom to book a getaway anytime, anywhere.

Designed to work with over 3000 mobile devices, Mobile Emirates.com has been optimised to ensure that customers on the move can easily and efficiently access the emirates.com website, through their mobile phones.

The new sophisticated functionality ensures that the Emirates website is downloaded in the appropriate format for each specific mobile device, allowing customers to perform a multitude of tasks including; booking and managing a flight, mobile check-in, searching flight schedules and status and even checking the in-flight amenities available on a specific flight.

Russell Sheldon, Emirates Senior Vice President, Network Sales and Passenger Development said: “Consumers are far more mobile than ever before. There is a constant need for products and services to cater to the fast paced lifestyle that today’s individuals lead, people want it here and now, without exception. Mobile search has become one of the fastest growing activities on the internet and as one of the foremost innovative airlines, the move to allow passengers to quickly and conveniently book their tickets through their mobile phone was a natural one.

“Emirates has always been committed to offering our customers simple and efficient ways to interact with us and we are confident that Mobile Emirates.com will help us to further achieve this.”


Customers must have an internet enabled device to access Mobile Emirates.com. Once they log on to www.emirates.com they will be automatically redirected to the mobile optimised version of the website. At launch, the site will be available worldwide in the English language only.
